Idiots bring 1918 flu back to life

”It is kind of neat looking through the microscope and realizing you are looking at something that is responsible for so many deaths”
– Darwyn Kobasa
All I can say is that are some really, really scary people out there. I ran into this article on Google’s news feed, “Researchers bring 1918 flu virus back to life” The quote above comes directly from the article mentioned.
Why hasn’t anyone has demanded this guy be removed from the project? He said something that might be OK to think, but is clearly asinine to say. I don’t care if it was a mistake. Let’s error on the safe side and put someone less careless in there.
This virus killed 50-100 MILLION people in 18 months flat, that was 5% of the world. It was contained safely and then we gave it to this Darwyn Kobasa guy who thinks it’s neat looking. …Am I the only one who has a problem with this?
I realize it’s important that we know how this virus works, but who in their right mind would let this idiot play with it?
People constantly talk shit about my generation, and most the time they’re right. GenX is a lot of things, but here’s one thing we’re not: We’re not going to give a smart psycho something this deadly. Why? We’ve seen movies.
Smart psychos are the most dangerous kind, right?
This guy is clearly a) smart and b) psycho.
Darwyn Kobasa needs to be removed from this project. Why risk it!?
